Overview of this book

There is a lot of work that is being done in the IoT domain and according to Forbes the global IoT market will grow from $157B in 2016 to $457B by 2020. This is an amazing market both in terms technology advancement as well as money. In this book, we will be covering five popular IoT platforms, namely, AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, Google IoT Core, IBM Watson IoT, and Kaa IoT middleware. You are going to build solutions that will use a Raspberry Pi 3, a DHT11 Temperature and humidity sensor, and a dashboard to visualize the sensor data in real-time. Furthermore, you will also explore various components of each of the platforms that are needed to achieve the desired solution. Besides building solutions, you will look at how Machine Learning and IoT go hand in hand and later design a simple predictive web service based on this concept. By the end of this book, you will be in a position to implement an IoT strategy best-fit for your organization

Getting Started with IoT Platforms

In the previous chapter, we saw the various domain specific use cases and application areas. In this chapter, we are going to put that knowledge to use by building our sample IoT solution using Raspberry Pi 3, DHT11 temperature and humidity sensor, and the ThingSpeak platform. We are going to start off by developing an understanding of what an IoT platform is and how one can easily use them to build an IoT solution without much hassle.

The topics covered in this chapter are as follows:

  • Introduction to IoT platforms
  • Getting started with Raspberry Pi 3
  • Getting started with the ThingSpeak IoT platform
  • Building an IoT solution that shows the temperature and humidity in real time on the ThingSpeak dashboard
